Truckstops Accommodating Professional Truck Drivers During the Pandemic
Travel centers and truckstops across the United States continue to provide food, fuel and the other essential amenities needed by professional drivers.
Truck drivers are depending on truckstops and travel centers as they deliver food and life-saving supplies. Our members are committed to doing their part during the nation’s response to this emergency. As the nation confronts the coronavirus outbreak, the country's travel centers and truckstops are committed to remaining open and serving America's drivers. Fuel retailers are ‘essential’ businesses that must remain open even if other ‘nonessential’ businesses are forced to close.
Travel centers are well-positioned to serve the nation’s hard-working, professional drivers during this critical time.
Although some states have ordered the closing of sit-down restaurants, travel plazas and truckstops offer many food options, including quick-serve food and healthy grab-and-go options. Even where restaurants are prohibited from offering sit-down table service, travel centers are converting those restaurants to allow for take-out options.
Below is a link to NATSO’s trucsktops and travel center directory of nearly 2,000 truckstops.
Below is detailed information on several members.
